Call to action:
Using System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) to monitor a SharePoint environment
Timing: 18:00 - 21:00
System Center Operations Manager 2007 is THE end to end Monitoring Solution. In this session we will discuss what you, as SharePoint guys, find relevant to be monitored. System Center Operations Manager uses a SharePoint Monitoring toolkit for monitoring the SharePoint Environment. This toolkit consists of a set of System Center Operations Manager 2007 management packs designed to help IT pros monitor their WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 and 2007 SP1 environments. These newly released packs were engineered to take advantage of SCOM 2007’s features, including new and improved reporting, additional actions, new views, and integrate IIS and SQL health rollup for a better understanding of the system-level dependencies of the SharePoint environments. And last but not least: System Center Operations Manager can also emulate end user experience by monitoring a Web Application. We will show you how to monitor a Web Application, even if it is require credentials, and how to record a browser session.
If you have a SharePoint environment and don’t have a monitoring solution at the moment then you can’t miss this session!

Security Awareness - Technical Underground
This practical session will be a technical underground session on security awareness.
The first part will handle overall security like social engineering, gathering information, ... Second part will go more into detail on the technical aspects, like arp spoofing, dns spoofing, password cracking, mobile phones, wireless, ...
We would like to show that it shouldn't be too difficult to gather information. It's not about hacking, but making audience aware what lives in security and that there is more than only patching operating systems...

The Belgian System Center Usergroup organizes another event:
Getting started with Out of band service management:
Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 added this brand new feature called out of band service management. In my opinion a worth-while addition, yet it competes with the NAP feature for the position of least used SCCM 2007 feature, whereas it deserves a place up there with the feature hotshots like software distribution and OS deployment. The main reason it isn't up there in the popular feature list is most likely because the provisioning of systems to support out of band service management can be a little bit tricky. During this session we'll show you how to get provisioning going. We'll talk about the 3 different ways of provisioning, and show you the easiest way to get going. If you have ConfigMgr 2007 SP1 running and have machines with Intel Vpro capabilities then you can't miss this session. Unless the following features are not appealing to you at all:
